Being A Singular They

Being A Singular They

Join me on Monday evening to talk about performing as a nonbinary person - how my gender has shaped my work and vice versa. I'll be showing some excerpts from A Singular They, including the evolution of the oldest work in the show from 2014-present, during which time quite a lot of gender has happened to it. We'll talk about what it's like to choreograph through transition and to make choices in presentation as a nonbinary person in a distinctly binary world. 

 

Master Class with Ruth Childs: A Unique Opportunity to Learn Parts of Lucinda Childs's Most Famous Pieces: Katema and Calico Mingling

Master Class with Ruth Childs: A Unique Opportunity to Learn Parts of Lucinda Childs's Most Famous Pieces: Katema and Calico Mingling

Ruth Childs is pleased to give a short masterclass on the choreographic work of Lucinda Childs focusing on the period that comes after the Judson Dance Theater period. In the 1970s, three founding elements appear in Lucinda’s way of creating: the use of a score, a path in a space and a rhythm imposed without music. Ruth wants to share, discuss and work on the scores of Calico Mingling (1973) and Katema (1978.)

CONTRA-TIEMPO joyUS justUS

CONTRA-TIEMPO joyUS justUS

Based on the personal truths about the power of hope, faith and family, joyUS justUS changes the dominant narrative about people of color from being voiceless and powerless to embodying stories of joy. Created by Los Angeles-based CONTRA-TIEMPO, the piece is an example of the activist dance theatre company's approach to community building and facilitating dialogue through an invigorating blend of physically intense and politically astute performance work.
